Healthy muscles, joints and bones working together produce good musculoskeletal wellbeing, and when our musculoskeletal system functions well, it can help us to feel strong and healthy.
Good musculoskeletal health is necessary in order for us to carry out our daily activities with ease and without discomfort, both for now and in the future.
Bones, muscles and joints need movement to stay healthy. As the saying goes - move it or lose it. This is very relevant for musculoskeletal health.
Undertaking regular Pilates sessions assists in building this functional muscle and bone strength; which in turn can help to reduce the risk of developing some painful musculoskeletal conditions. Pilates exercises aid to strengthen muscles and improve flexibility. Also, Pilates exercises which involve moving against the force of gravity can help to increase bone density.
Pilates can also reduce the risk of pain and injury to our musculoskeletal system by improving our posture and enhancing the mindfulness of our movement techniques.
Throughout our lives we face challenges in maintaining musculoskeletal wellness, engaging in regular Pilates sessions can be a component in keeping our musculoskeletal system healthy.
